Manchester United manager David Moyes is reported to have ruled out a move for Newcastle captain Yohan Cabaye, a target for Arsenal, as he strives to reinforce his midfield before the close of the transfer window.

According to The Guardian, the Premier League champions have no interest in pursuing players they deem to be ordinary and will stick to their recruitment policy of making quality signings that can offer a long-term impact.

Cabaye reportedly falls into the former bracket and Moyes has dismissed the suggestion of luring the France international, who scored at Old Trafford earlier this season, to the club.

It has been claimed that Newcastle would request £26 million for the acquisition of Cabaye, but Manchester United will focus their attention elsewhere - namely on Chelsea's Juan Mata.

Although Moyes may have withdrawn from the running, the future of Cabaye at St James' Park remains unclear with both Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain also credited with interest.

The Gunners made a bid for the 28-year-old during the summer transfer window which led to Newcastle manager Alan Pardew criticising the conduct of counterpart Arsene Wenger.

Cabaye spent a period out of the Newcastle first-team following the interest of Arsenal, but has returned to play a prominent role in propelling the club into the Premier League's top eight.
